From that place where the lines blur, where Rhythm and Blues, country and Melodic Pop merge, stand the WRIGHT BROTHERS. Where echoes of Chicago Blues, the wail of the down home train and the emotive strut of country music become something more, these musicians make this place their own. Although the bands' unique sound is deeply rooted in the Pop/R&B tradition, they take the music a step further. The superb voice of Lee Wright accentuated with his cutting edge lead guitar and keyboards,... Topic: Wright Brothers
This is a folk song I composed about the Wright Brothers' hunger to fly. This song is dedicated to the visionaries among us - Stewart Brand, Joan Baez, Michael Lang, Steve Wozniak, Esther Dyson, Phillip Torrone, Brewster Kahle, Vint Cerf and Googlers near and far. We must all feel that hunger to fly in order to reach our goals. In the folk song tradition, feel free to add your own verses to this song when you're singing it. Go read a book or two about the Wright Brothers, too. I should have... Topics: wrightbrothers, wright brothers, fly, imagination, collaboration
Travel back in time with the tree house detectives to learn about the process of invention from two of the greatest inventors of all time, Orville and Wilbur Wright. As the tree house detectives try to create their own invention, they get expert help from the Wright brothers, NASA researchers, and other experts in the community. The tree house detectives find that inventing is not as easy as it seems, and it really does take the "Wright" stuff to be a good inventor. To license this...

A Bird, A Heart, A Bicycle 2003 17 December BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Play Peter Roberts' comedy takes a sideways look at the race to achieve powered flight at the end of the Nineteenth Century. In December 1903, The Wright Brothers were the first men to achieve powered flight when their primitive plane took off over the dunes at Kitty Hawk. Or were they? Could it be that a lesser-known English aristocrat, one Sidney Mangot Walsh, actually launched a plane just weeks before the Wright Brothers'...

From Wikipedia: "This film was taken in Italy on April 24, 1909. It is the first time a motion picture was ever shot from a plane in flight. The footage shows what it was like to fly on one of the early Wright craft, with Wilbur at the helm. The clip opens with the launching, then the plane climbs, levels off, and passes over the flight grounds." Topics: wright brothers, aviation, planes, early films, wilbur wright
The birth of aeronautical engineering began in the Wright brothers' bike shop in Dayton, Ohio. The family tree of airplanes can be traced back to the Wright brothers’ 1903 Flyer. The principals of flight that got the Wrights into the air are the same today. Join STEM in 30 as we investigate the principals of flight and how the Wright Flyer made it into the air and into the history books. This program is made possible though the generous support of the Alcoa Foundation. Topics: Washington, DC, STEM in 30, Educational Access TV, Youtube, Wright Brothers, Aviation, Airplane,...

We did cool stuff to reduce the number of IVPs and BVPs needed to schedule SOFIA by restricting the problem. The restriction costs us little in terms of the value of the flight plans we can build. The restriction allowed us to reformulate part of the search problem as a zero-finding problem. The result is a simplified planning model and significant savings in computation time.
